FM updates on the way

Postby bloodjelly » Sun Mar 08, 2020 1:14 pm

Hi all! There are changes on the way that will make your experience (and your audience's) here faster, easier, and just more enjoyable. Here's what I have planned and have already started working on:

For visitors/buyers/artists:

  • Improved gallery look and navigation
  • Quicker loading pages
  • Faster, cohesive and easier art search across the entire site
  • Redesigned "Buy art" page
  • More focus on attracting new buyers
  • Faster and more intuitive logging in and registering
  • Lots of little fixes and improvements

For artists:
  • Redesigned and simplified dashboard
  • Enhanced gallery statistics
  • Infinite-loading canvas (main gallery) page
  • Lots of little fixes and improvements

BIG(ger) changes:
  • ALL artists will be able to sell prints via artStock
  • Star ratings will be simplified to a single "like" star, versus an actual rating
  • The Twitter feed and guestbook widgets will be removed from artists' canvas page

The main goals of all these changes is to simplify things for you and for your visitors, and to make the site and your gallery here stand out to everyone who sees it. I plan on rolling out the changes fairly soon, but not necessarily all at once. I'll update this thread when somethings about to be released, so you might want to keep an eye on it.

Do you have any questions or suggestions? Please let me know. Thanks :D

P.S. If you'd like a preview of what your new gallery will look like, just contact me.

Thank you for always working on making things better. Love that I can now add more than 1 photo to the same item. For my work and I'm sure for others as well it is better to show the angles so you can see it's 3D :)
